The Democratically controlled House of Representatives voted Friday 236-173 in favor of the Equality Act, which would require schools to include male athletes who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams.
Eight Republicans crossed party lines to vote for the bill, which had unanimous Democratic support.
Society has decided to allow gender confused men to dictate new rules in competitive sports. All this was done in the name of political correctness. Isn’t biology the reason we have separate sports competitions?
It seems that biology isn’t a leftist favorite subject!
Also if any of the 2020 presidential candidates become president he would support this kind of bill.
Every Democratic presidential candidate polling above 1% supports a bill that would force schools to include male athletes who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams.
The bill amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law.
In addition, every House Democrat but one co-sponsored the legislation. The only Democrat who wasn’t a co-sponsor, Illinois Rep. Dan Lipinski, announced his support for the bill following pressure from left-wing activists.
From the Daily Caller:
The top seven Democratic presidential candidates in RealClearPolitics’ running average of primary polls have all publicly endorsed the legislation.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, the frontrunner, said passing the Equality Act would be his top legislative priority if elected.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is polling second behind Biden, co-sponsored the Senate version of the Equality Act and included the bill in his presidential platform.
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren also co-sponsored the bill and pledged to “fight tooth and nail” to get it passed if elected.
South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg said he strongly supports the Equality Act and called the bill’s passage in the House “a historic moment for equal rights in America.” Buttigieg is polling fourth in the RealClearPolitics average.
California Sen. Kamala Harris co-sponsored the Senate bill, describing its passage as “a pivotal part in ending homophobia and transphobia and moving our culture forward to be more inclusive and respectful.”
The Equality Act is prominently featured in Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s plan for “LGBTQ+ Equality,” which he released earlier in June. O’Rourke pledged to get the bill passed into law if he is elected.
Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey also co-sponsored the Equality Act in the Senate, and publicly signed onto a petition singer Taylor Swift launched in support of the bill.
They are so proud of themselves when they should be so ashamed of themselves … so unfair to the girl athletes!
For years women have fought to be recognized as equal to men, and now that progress is being made, the Democrats change the rules once again to favor men.
I thought the Democrats were the party of women?
Every voting age woman should be outraged by this and think again about which party is really helping women to succeed
